You are trying to tell me that people purchase more from Apple stores than they do from Argos or Tescos?
That's a fucking lot of apps and tunes. All virtual goods of course.
I think I've maybe spent 20 bucks in the last year on the Android market, and several thousand in Argos and Tescos (I have kids). Either these figures are wrong or the world now views virtual goods as or more important than feeding ourselves and buying plastic crap.
